Valmet is set to rebuild a pretreatment system for RE Energy’s biorefinery in Kalundborg, Denmark.
The order was included in Valmet’s orders received of the second quarter 2021 and the delivery is planned for the first half of next year. The value of the order will not be disclosed.
“RE Energy acquired the old biorefinery with the clear intention to bring it back in operation. This includes replacing the pretreatment system to achieve stable operation. We have great expectations that we, through the corporation and with the Valmet team and their technology, will achieve this goal,” said Henrik Maimann, CEO of RE Energy.
RE Energy’s biorefinery will produce 2G bioethanol and lignin, and in collaboration with a partner, utilise the hemicellulose to produce new innovative ingredients.
“We are very happy that RE Energy is investing in the Kalundborg plant and that they have chosen Valmet as the supplier. RE Energy has a very interesting project coming up and the future looks promising with their new and interesting products”, added Tomas Jonsson, sales manager, Biomass Conversion Technology Unit, Valmet.
